We went to Pefkos last year after falling in love with Rhodes on a days cruise stop over the previous year. To 'Honest Ben' - Hire a car and take the road to Falaraki- about half an hour along the road there is a sign to the right saying 'three lovely beaches'. This leads you to three separate coves, each unique and interesting - with a great taverna on each. One in particular has several rock pools you have to walk across (deep enough to sit in to cool down) to the edge of the pools where ther are steps into cold , deep. Wonderful, quiet,and idyllic.
I'm so excited, I have just booked one week in July in Pefkos...after reading on the positive comments....
I have been to Rhodes before and loved it....first time back in 14 years!!!
Me and my lovely partner John are going here for a 2 week holiday in July - I am so so excited about going after reading all the great comments made! Ive been to many greek islands before and enjoyed them all - but ive got a great feeling that this is gonna be the best! Hope to meet some of the nice people that go there and enjoy great nights and relaxing days at the beach! Yipee! x
Haraki is heaven on earth, no booming bars, no young brits showing all they've got no mc donalds,no screamnig and shouting in the streets, just good food, the nicest people on earth, a warm wecome every where you go. I have never been to a place where time does'nt matter until I came here. Everyone you see in Haraki has a smile for you, locals and tourists alike. You can go out and stay out until four or five in the morning,and still stroll home as if it's half eleven. Don,t get me wrong laid back and chilled it may be but that does'nt mean you can't have a good laugh, in fact we've met some of the funniest people, the greeks have a fabulous sense of humour, and we can't wait to go back.
Seven Springs (Epta Piges)
I went to seven springs in sep 2007 with a greek friend, after staying in lindos it was lovely to venture out into the island and taste "proper" Greece. it was a beautifull day and the food from the little resturant there was really nice and authentic. lots of really good photo oppertunitys by the river and the family of peacocks come rite up to ur table and sit with you! i really would recommend visiting next time your in rhodes, i will deff be going back (for the fourth time!!)
My fiance and I arrived in Rhodes with a Cruise, and found out about the monastery talking to a few ladies in a shop, who told about the miracle. Well, having tried for a baby for over a year and a half, we thought we'd give it a try so we went to visit this cute little church (we didn't actually go up to the mountain barefoot) and prayed to our Lady. Such an experience!!! Believ it of not, after two weeks.... we were expecting!!! Thank you Panaya (name of the Our lady in Greek) we will return with Alessandro! We will never forget this experience!!!
My wife is from Rhodes and we were there in July '09 so decided on a day trip to the beach at Haraki. That day trip lasted four days.
What a beautiful bay, beautiful people and such a relaxed and quiet atmosphere.
Bravo Haraki, we are coming back to our little gem.
We went last year as we have visited Rhodes (other resorts) before an we love pefkos the best, such a wonderfull place, plenty for us all to do, you don't get harrased by people outside the resturants and the food is great, plenty to do and see, and a special mention to the finas appartments where we stayed, going back in 2011 and we want to get married there. Go and you will return again and again.
I loving reading through all the comments left, everybody seems to enjoy the place so much! The fact that so many return year upon year speaks for itself.
Me and my girlfriend have been looking at a first holiday together (alone) for a while and wanted something that we other havent done before, something new to both of us.
i like the idea of a quieter base that is pefkos and going to explore the rest of the island from there on a coupe days with a hire car.
Any must sees outside of pefkos??
we are booked in to evi studios from the 2nd sept 2010
What a treasure this little village is and long may it continue to be, I went with my children and felt at home, the people were friendly and made us feel very welcome,
We will return there this year and look forward to the wonderful relaxing holiday this resort has to offer.
